Northwest Arkansas Pre-Construction Stormwater Education Program
Why was the program developed?
Awareness, understanding, and compliance with stormwater construction regulations can be a challenge. In Northwest Arkansas, this educational program offers an overview of why construction BMPs are important and what permitting, paperwork, and BMPs are required. Participation can help eliminate the "I didn't know" response that's often heard during construction site inspections.
Who is the program for?
This pre-construction stormwater education program is designed specifically for contractors, developers, and persons responsible for inspecting and maintaining stormwater controls on a construction site to be shared during pre-construction meetings.
